The remains of an ancient church were discovered in an Israeli prison. The Israel Antiquities Authority announced Saturday that the remains of an altar, a mosaic with inscriptions in Greek and a mural showing fish were found in Megiddo Prison, a top-security installation in the Galilee where Palestinian terrorists are held. The relics may date as far back as the 3rd century.
